    Depends on how many emails you usually get. (Or whatever it is you're pushing and fetching.)

    If you get a lot (like, let's say 15 an hour) then fetching will use less power. If you let less (like, 1 every 2 hours) then pushing will be better.

    In between? Hard to say, you'll probably have to push for a week and then fetch for a week and compare the weeks. We really have no way of answering you since everyone's usage is different.

    Ah well I maybe receive 7 to 13 emails in a day. So push is probably better then.

    Yeah, with that schedule fetch would be checking many, many times a day and finding nothing.

    I can't say for sure, but I'd guess that push probably is best for you.
